Basic guide for survey stationing (metric and imperial)

Basic guide for survey stationing (metric and imperial)

Basic guide for survey stationing (metric and imperial)

Could someone remind me on the basic guide on how to assign stations numbering for roadways, dykelines, etc?

Any difference between metric and imperial system ?

A dykeline 15 km long:
Start from 0+00 and end at 15+00
Start from 0+000 and end at 15+000

A road 20 miles long:
How the stations looks like?

Is there a PDF documents in the internet where I can get a copy to look at?

Thanks for info!

RE: Basic guide for survey stationing (metric and imperial)

Not sure if this a general thing but I prefer

Start 00+00  to end  150+00


RE: Basic guide for survey stationing (metric and imperial)

typically, I never start at 0+00 but prefer to start at 10+00
